Jack White – Lazaretto

July 8th, 2014

Left Alone to His Own Devices

Jack White’s second solo album, Lazaretto, is upon us. It is not Blunderbuss, Part Two (The Reblundering?), and anyone expecting more of the same from Jack White in any context may have missed the point. Whether it was the steady, continuing evolution of The White Stripes, the dark and moody crunch of The Dead Weather, or the jam-ready rock of The Raconteurs, White changes things up at every turn. When left to his own devices, his sound becomes simultaneously more concentrated and more expansive. Despite taking authorial lead, he invites more collaboration in the form of guest artists and his two backing bands, The Buzzards and The Peacocks. He experiments, he stretches and he surprises, giving little care to style or genre boundaries. In another artist’s hands the variety accomplished on Blunderbuss would have felt unfocused and jarring. Instead, White found thematic continuity and made it exciting. So what of Lazaretto?

Bonnaroo 2014: Day Three

June 25th, 2014
Comments Off

The clouds withheld their rain, opting instead to roll on by; but that did not stop the heat from cranking up for day three on The Farm. ‘Roovians trudged from their campsites wielded a variety of sticks to help spot their clans, carried umbrellas to hide from the heat or bared it all to soak up the sun. Over in Centeroo, Bonnaroo’s signature watering hole called The Fountain, along with a fifty-foot inflatable waterslide and slip-n-slide, was all the rage throughout the day. Nevertheless, music lovers alike could not ignore the plethora of amazing bands that were lined up throughout the day. Read more…
